The previous and ongoing work of the AHCPR-funded Patient Outcomes Research Team (PORT) on BPH and localized prostate cancer, headed by John E. Wennberg, MD, was invaluable, especially the work of Jack Fowler, PhD, in developing the patient preference tests. Special thanks are extended to the staff and Executive Committee of the American Urological Association for its collaboration and cooperation with this project.
